Led by Nancy Ma and Eric B. Anthony, you will come back to the core of who you are as an artist. Each class offers a unique exploration into the depths of your artistry. Emotional specificity, scene work, audition on-camera work, movement, and Industry advice all help you focus your talent and electrify your artistry. This 8 week journey will help you find your unique voice as an actor and reveal what might be in the way of the fullest expression of that voice. You will explore various practices, find connection to your scene partner, and begin to own your artistic power.
This class is not an audition or employment opportunity and there is no suggestion or guarantee of an audition or employment as a result of taking this class.
"I absolutely loved my time in the Core class. I recommend this class to anyone who needs a renewed sense of fun in their work. After taking many technique-based classes, I needed to infuse ‘me’ back into my work and my process. The unique way BGB has crafted this course aids each actor in developing their own way. I can't even fully describe how amazing this class was for me and the immediate difference I began to see and feel in my work."
- Taylor Polidore, BLACK LIGHTNING
"I have been lucky enough to have known Nancy as an artist for years. I count myself especially lucky to have experienced her as a teacher. She is sensitive and kind, but also a powerful guide in helping us expand our talent. Her instincts are spot on, her re-directs are inspiring. She is a teacher who makes you feel safe and ready to take risks in your work. Nancy is a special spirit in this world, and I am so excited she gets to share that as a teacher. And she truly loves this work."
- Ashley Dianne Currie, SEAL TEAM
"Nancy Ma. There aren’t enough beautiful words in the history of words that could help me sum up how I feel about this fierce woman. She’s inspiring. She’s loving. She’s a powerhouse. And she’s an absolutely amazing teacher. She offers up such vulnerability and honesty in her guidance which constantly leaves me wanting more. Your life and career will be blessed taking class with her."
- Julienne Irons, HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER
"Your Studio, starting with The Core, has completely changed my life for the better these last two years. Many thanks!"
- Ryan March, GILMORE GIRLS: A YEAR IN THE LIFE
"Nancy creates space with such generosity, patience and grace that the outcome for the work is always true authenticity."
-Dre Jackson, THE POLITICIAN
"Eric is a true original. He teaches you how to lead with courage in the craft, how to be uncompromising with your point of view, and the gift you have as an artist to offer the world. His love for artists (and people) is so evident and has inspired me to new levels in my work and my life. He has awakened in me what it truly means to lead as an artist without compromise. I’m so filled with gratitude for our work together."
- Chellee Ray, UNDER THE BALCONY
